August Bluebirds

Eastern Bluebird, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
The last bluebird brood of the year at the Charles River Peninsula will probably fledge sometime next week. Meanwhile the parents are keeping busy feeding hungry noisy chicks.

They've found an ideal set up. The huge oak that Irene knocked down last year provides a couple of perfect snags for fly catching.
The parents can hunt from the snags.
And then make a quick delivery to the nest box nearby.
